most definately not English muffins which is bread.

wherever you learnt that, unlearn it.

Yep. Not the same thing. When I was a kid, muffins were what Southerners had toasted for breakfast and crumpets were what Northerners had. Only sold them in winter too.

Have you seen what the Pike Place Crumpet Shop does to our crumpets ??

https://thecrumpetshop.com/crumpets/

 

High P - Made a few favorites for the boys last week end. I've been stuffing my face with Lemon Curd (well Lime curd if the truth be known) and Pate on toast (no not together ..... but it might be on the menu at Pike Place Crumpet Shop) all week,

Are you OK?  Have you ever tried to make crumpets in Thailand? Do you know how much a cast iron skillet costs?  Do you know how difficult it is to get even heating with a gas hob?  Who is going to clean up all that batter mess? And getting the batter out of the egg rings?   Do you know where to get good flour in a small Thai town?  How do you get the gas on a low setting?  There are no low setting gas hobs in Thailand!  Have you ever been to Thailand?

I bought a silicone six ring thingy from Lazada. Easy to clean and works a treat. I use a heavy, non stick frying pan, works fine. Bought a five burner hob from Boonthavorn. Can turn one burner down to not much more than the heat of a candle. Strong flour (bread flour) is available at a number of shops.

Now that's what I need. Tip much appreciated and off to search Lazada.

 

I can consign those lethal egg rings to the bin. The world is a safer place and no more need to clean up the blood and batter mess 🤣

Pleased that you enjoy baking.

Perhaps the colonial version of a crumpet lost something in translation or the Seattle weather was not conductive to their production. Try the recipe below

https://www.jamieoliver.com/recipes/bread-recipes/classic-crumpets/

 

I appear to have been more fortunate than yourself when handling Egg rings. Not sure if its all the HS&E training I received during my manufacturing career or the fact my egg rings do not have razor edges ( resist temptation to say 'fall under the second amendment' )

I believe I know a good crumpet when I taste one having been brought up in the UK and purchased them from local bakers in Lancashire. 

No doubt those posting on this thread can propose a host of items/ideas/ recipes where a skillet is useful. It might convince you to invest in one.

I will try to get some crumpets from Tops and pass comment when I get chance.

Yes I use a spatula to turn the rings and the crumpets tend to drop down,

This allows me to brown them off whilst starting another one in the egg ring. Why are the crumpets in your picture so pale ?

 

Not complicated and not time consuming.

 

Sorry my picture is not isolated to crumpets (look LHS back). However if you can enlarge it you will see they look pretty good (unlike my potato cakes which I admit were cr&p)

You do yourself a disservice. Potato cakes look fine. The crispy burny bits are what gives them the flavour.

 

Crumpets look a bit thick but it's the taste that counts. Try a pastry knife to turn the crumpets out of the rings.

 

I too am a Lancastrian and know a good crumpet when I see one. Have bought them at Villa Market in the past, now 210 baht for 6 small crumpets and they taste awful. Don't bother. Only way to gewt good crumpets in Thailand is to make your own. However, if friends are visiting, I always get them to bring over a couple of packs of Warburtons crumpets. Simply the best and 40 baht for a pack of 9 in the UK.

 

Amazing spread BTW well done!

Funny.

 

Crumpets are easy to make at home. Regular frying pan, silicone rings, regular gas hob, regular flour........... need I go on?

Yep. The missus ordered two for breakfast, this morning at Retox. Served with honey, marmalade and a mug of builders tea. She'd never drunk tea with milk before, she put some of the honey in it and loved it.

If you want low heat take the saucepan holder off one ring and place it on top of another...that's how I cook my fillet steaks.....
